APC Speaks On Governor Ortom’s Purported Defection From The Party

Published

on

In a statement signed by the APC Director of Publicity, Comrade Peterhot Apeh, the Benue State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has spoken out on alleged defection of Governor Samuel Ortom.

The Benue State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has described reports of the defection by Governor Samuel Ortom from the party as ‘a fabricated falsehood and handiwork of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Chairman of the APC in the state, Comrade Abba Yaro, in a statement signed by the Party’s Director of Publicity, Comrade Peterhot Apeh, while dispelling the report as a mere rumour, he also informed that the Governor is still very much in the ruling party.

Said he, “Those carrying rumours of Governor Ortom’s purported defection from the party ahead of the 2019 elections are merely fabricating heaps of malicious propaganda to cause disaffection between the Benue State governor, Dr. Samuel Ortom and the party leadership at the national level.”

 

“It is noteworthy to inform the public that Governor Samuel Ortom is very much with the All Progressives Congress party. There’s no rift between us in Benue and the party leadership in Abuja. We are working harmoniously to ensure security of our people. The Governor and the party leadership are trying their best to proffer lasting solution to the perennial herders/farmers clashes.

The APC chairman said “the rumour was the handiwork of the opposition and other recalcitrant elements whose job was to formulate non-existing stories to get one square meal from their paymasters who are trigger ready with our stolen monies to sponsor falsehood against the APC in their malaise dysphoria.”

 

The APC Chairman noted that since elections are at the corners, there would be all forms of spurious sponsorship of injurious media campaigns by “unscrupulous Abuja-based politicians, especially those PDP scoundrels that were shamefully rejected by Nigerians in the 2015 general elections”.

Yaro also advised “those being used against Governor Ortom to strive more for their futures and the development of the state rather than play to the hands of dubious politicians who, in their dumbness, are only trading their future but training own children to take over from them as demigods.”

The party chairman, however, assured that Governor Ortom, as a grassroots mobiliser, would deliver the state for the party in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.

Lekki Toll Gate Future Proceeds Should Go To Victims Of Police Brutality: Tinubu

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former governor of Lagos state has stated that the future proceeds from Lekki toll gate be donated to victims of late endSARS protest in Lagos.

The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress stated this in a statement made available to newsmen in Lagos.

 

 

Read his statement below;

“Today, I speak to those who believe in the importance of, and want to know, the truth,” Tinubu said.

“The slander aimed at me is based on the untruth that I own the toll gate concession. The hate mongers prevaricate that I ordered the Lekki assault because the protests had caused me to lose money due to the interruption of toll gate activity,” Tinubu said.

“The toll gate is a public asset. Given what has happened, I would like to propose to the government that the toll gate be left closed for an indefinite period.

“If it is reopened, revenues should be donated to the confirmed victims of the Lekki attack as well as to other identifiable victims of police brutality in Lagos.

“Let government use the money to compensate and take care of those who have lost life or limb in the struggle for all citizens to go about the quiet, peaceful enjoyment of life without fear of undue harassment at this or that checkpoint,” he said.

“Although equipped with prior notice of the imminent trespass, I did not call anyone to seek or request for the army or police to deploy let alone attack, kill, or injure those who razed and vandalized these properties.

“I did not want any bloodshed. These elements, mostly hirelings of my political opponents, wreaked their havoc and destroyed those buildings and facilities and I thank God that the employees of these two media institutions managed to escape largely unharmed,” he said.

”In good opinion, it is illogical that he allowed damage to his investments but ordered: “soldiers to repel peaceful protesters from the toll gate where I have no financial interest”.

“Why would I be so moved as to instigate the army to attack peaceful, law-abiding people at the toll gate where I have no pecuniary stake, yet lift not a single finger to stop hired miscreants bent on setting fire to these important media investments?”.
